The Secrets to Success When Turning Pro!

Thanks to all of you who attended our class Zoom meeting. It was nice to be able to put faces to names.

As we discussed, I have created a companion workbook for this class that I am sure you will find very helpful in tracking, organizing and utilizing the information that I will present in class. It contains over 120 pages of notes, articles and worksheets.

I have many students tell me that they still have and use their workbook even years after taking my class.
It will be printed in glorious Black and White, and for a number of reasons, I will not be able to provide a PDF as we discussed. It will only be available in printed format.

If you would like one, please purchase it online by clicking on the following link:

You are not required to purchase a workbook for this class, however, I will only print a limited supply to fulfill orders. It really expedites things if you will order online.

Workbooks will be delivered to you on the first day of class.
I have also create a class hub where you can find links to previous emails, online lessons and a slew of items that we will discuss in class.

I will post images from class, links to resources and much more, so bookmark the link because I know you will want to return to it again and again.

To visit the hub, click the link below:
Also remember to order you meters and your flash if you do not already have one.

Again, you can borrow what you need or look on with someone.

Arlington Camera is the official supplier to Texas School, and you can trust that you are getting a great price.

Please use this link to pre-order any gear you would like to have delivered in time for class.
Assignment #7: The Final Lesson Before Class

If you have not started your homework studies, please get on it because you will get behind and get overwhelmed.

Lesson 7 is ready for you: Lesson 7: ISOs | Pass the CPP

In case you missed it, here are the links to previous lessons:

Remember, take your time and really learn the material.

Here is an updated list of things to bring:

  • Get your two all-time favorite images printed into 8×10.
  • Pack of 3×5 notecards.
  • Bring a sweater or a jacket and know that the room will be cold. When we head outside, it may be 95° and 100% humidity, so be prepared to peel off layers.
  • Camera
  • Lens (28 – 100mm lens is great. Don’t feel like you have to bring every lens you own
  • Flash
  • Meter
  • Note pad and pens – You can bring a laptop, but it is not required and don’t expect to be able to plug it in. We will not be doing any image editing in class. Don’t expect to be able to plug it in.
  • Toga – yup, there is a Toga party on Tuesday, and I am counting on all of you to participate
  • If you want to bring some images for me to critique, please gather them all on one place for me to review. For example, put them all in one folder on your computer or tablet so we do not have to go searching for images.
  • Batteries for your flash, meter and camera – fully charged

That’s it for now!
